Clay County Harvest, 2015

David spent some time this week with Brent who is the farmer operating US Farmland Fund's land near Vermillion, SD. The corn was dry and yields were running around 240 bushels per acre. Brent was driving truck while his son was driving the grain cart and his father the combine. They were very pleased with the crop!

Wunderlich Farmland Partners Report - Sept 23

"Since 1990 farmland investments have outperformed other real estate asset classes by an average 400bps with lower volatility that has been uncorrelated to other real estate and broader markets. We believe the attractiveness of the sector will likely remain elevated for the foreseeable future with a shrinking supply of arable farmland coupled with population growth and the propensity for emerging economies to increase their meat consumption as per capita GDP growth increases."
